Honestly, you should do both. If you want to write a very good essay it takes time planning, writing, and revising. However, your essays can't be all that you do during the summer. Do extracurriculars to further your passions/interests and your appeal to colleges. Good luck.

Colleges value experience just as much or even more than academics and essays alone. Invest your time in experiences such as employment, internships, volunteering, sports, or arts!
